I've heard stories about this, but I was wondering what other people have experienced. There is a story going around (and has been for some time) that people can use your wireless internet connection to hack into your computer, then hack into your webcam and spy on you while your computer is on. This has gone so far that I know some friends who keep a strip of black tape over their webcam lens to keep people from spying on them. I'm not too worried, because I honestly don't do anything exciting enough to warrant someone spying on me. Is there any truth to this rumor? If so, what can someone do to protect themselves from this kind of thing? It sounds a little far-fetched to me, but I would like to hear what others think.
